What a great piece of writing!
I read a couple of days ago about the Nobel prize to two Australian scientists for proving that peptic ulcers are caused by a bacterium (Helicobacter). I wanted to find out more about this research when I chanced upon this article in the New Yorker.
This is an article that mixes science with its human aspect beautifully and written very well too. If Terence Monmaney writes a book, watch out for it! It should be an engrossing read!
A very illuminating read
